Customize Keyboard Shortcuts
I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.
I would really like to be able to change some of the shortcuts to match my workflow. Things like aligning, and color picking. Having the ability to adapt the workspace to what I need and how I work would be fantastic!
Collor Picker also could have an shorcut! Make it plz
Was this one ignored as well? None of these seem to be implemented. But each release does bring new problems for us to solve (and the costs that go with it).

Absolutely right. I'm currently breaking my fingers to switch between layers and assets (CTRL+Y and CTRL+SHIFT+Y) urhhhh! Can't I replace Y with R .... Well That'be awesome. Thanks!
I want a shortcut key custom and a calculation function in the numerical field of the object.
XD is used at work.
· Custom of shortcut key (to cause human error due to habit of other software)
· In the numerical value input field, control the size and position of the object by calculation like the illustrator (because X.y value in the input field and the vertical and horizontal width of the object can be exactly at the same time)
I would like you to be able to do the above.

The ability to switch mappings for tools would make the transition from other software and continued use much easier. For example, changing select (V) to select (W).
The new grid layout is awesome... but the default keyboard shortcut is already tied to something else on my Mac. Really need to be able to customize the keyboard shortcuts in Adobe XD so I can create something that works for my Mac!
all "Arrange" and "Grid" shortcuts are not working on Slovak keyboard.
Hopefully this feature will be available soon.

I hope this will be included in the next update for Adobe XD Beta.
But here's the lists of updated keyboard shortcuts as shared by the Adobe XD team
When you do get around to creating a key bind editor.. it'd be really nice if there was an option to change all key binds to mimic Sketch

This one is start to get really important.
With so many different people used to different shortcuts, this would be the end-all solution. Got my vote!

photoshop and illustrator have a tremendous amount of shortcuts. why not just use the same for XD? example, the "i" in illustrator will copy the style from an object and apply it to the current selected object.
That saves a tone of time for copying styles from one to the other.
Fonts, stroke, etc
also, why not have a shortcut to switch between prototype and design mode?

This. Please let me turn off A = artboard tool... I literally never need to make an empty artboard using that tool, 100% of the time I hit "A" it's expecting a direct-selection tool as in all the other Adobe apps I've used for the last 25+ years.

I totally agree with the usage of shortcuts, it would basically avoid compatibility problems like this one:
I live in Québec, Canada, so my personnal Mac’s keyboard is a French Canadian Qwerty (because of the use of all the accents etc..). At work though, I was given an English Canadian keyboard and can't change it. But I had it set in French Canadian Qwerty too, to keep it consistent between home and work.
The problem is that I prefer to use my softwares in French, but the french version of Xd has completely different shortcuts than the english version (that was visually more convenient for me because it was visually the same keys on the keyboard). Of course I could use Xd in English, as I am bilingual, but French is just faster to process for me when I read technical and specific content.
So because it would be insane to ask you guys to keep the same shortcuts for everyone, having the ability to customize the shortcuts would be great. So that’s my take in why I support this idea.
Do they even have a shortcut for eyedropper tool at the moment? Because I can't find it.
shortcut is cmd+ enter/return
Please don't forget to add a shortcut option for the play preview-button top right. :-)
Ps. Also add option to edit shortcuts, because some shortcuts does not work with Swedish keyboard layouts, as it appears.

- I'm unable to duplicate objects by pressing option + any arrow key - similar to photoshop.
- I'm also unable to reposition the shape using the space bar - similar to photoshop.
These two shortcuts would be nice additions to the workflow in XD and would cut down on time when creating projects, etc.
